Recently at an event for Kiehl's in London, she slicked on a smattering of slightly effervescent, glossy orange pigment that complemented the Barbara Casasola Spring 2015 sporty orange crop top and bronze pleated plissé skirt she was working the hell out of.

Rounding out her beauty look, Knowles' lips were painted a soft pink and her signature fluffy black hair was tied back into an easy ponytail. Like Rihanna's bouncy curls and bright fuschia pout, her look proved that big-hair-don't-care texture and rainbow-bright eyes, lips, or both combination is just what the doctor ordered this summer.
